  Here's another one off the beaten path. Welcome to the banks of the Nolichucky River-State of Franklin-1786-birth site of David Crocket...now Greene Co. Tenn. Humble beginnings. Crocket's grandfather was killed by native Indians...his father was one of the Overmountain Men. During his very early years the most organized form of government Crocket knew was that of the Cherokee Indians.. Rough, tough, ...ready to move in a minute. Joined the Tenn Militia & fought in the Indian Creek Wars. Two term Congressman from frontier Tennessee. Opposing fellow Tennessean Andrew Jackson's Indian removal policy helped defeat Crocket which, in anger, prompted one of his most famous orations you may all go to hell, and I will go to Texas. Crocket's death at the Alamo, like much of his life, is somewhat speculation. History offers more than one demise to Crocket... one is his "body was found surrounded by no less than 16 Spanish corpses, with Crocket's knife buried in one of them." Tennessee has since been known as the Volunteer State.  
 

IOWA BULLET

Here's a bullet you won't see everyday. A 0.54caliber...a crude bullet. The condition is very good to excellent dug. The patina is a real nice bright white. The bottom ring is an extra narrow U groove. The middle is a somewhat less narrow U groove. The top ring is a sharply upward slanting groove...a wide/deep groove. The nose is blunt...appears to be a nosecast bullet. The cavity is a cone. Measures about 0.53 x 0.98 inches. I have always been curious about this bullet & I still don't know what it is. At the 2013 Franklin show I saw 2 bullets just like this one at a Corinth relic dealers table. This bullet was dug from the Corinth/Shiloh area. A unusual bullet but not a one of a kind.

An ole timer Shiloh area digger shared some information on this bullet Monday. Seems this may be a union bullet. He tells me these bullets are found in US General William T. Shermans camps & to be more specific in his Iowa camps. His men camped in about 10 places between Shiloh and Corinth as the Union army moved to Corinth. We noticed many years ago the oddity of that bullet and they do come with a plug base(much harder to get than the cone) also. The digger feels strongly these bullets were dug from the 6th Iowa camps only. Some of these camps were dug in the 1970's & 80's.
